Hello,

My name is Vlad and my language pairs are Russian and English and though I have done interpreting work as a volunteer and for some pay, most of the jobs that I have gotten came from either the place where I had worked or by mistake. I am looking to become a professional interpreter and am having a hard time understanding what creditials are required. I am also interested in translation and find the same as well. I have a background in Russian (mother toungue) language and literature as well as English (American) and a background in the social services and medical fields. Can anyone recommend where I might start?
